Here And There…

Three days have passed since I came back to Bangalore after spending nearly a year in New York and I am already feeling he difference. The first thing that grabbed me when I walked out of Bangalore Airport was the crowd – NY was sleepy compared to this; the people, the sounds, the casual disregard for traffic rules and the chaotic harmony here is a welcome change.

I never realized how much I missed home until I took a bite of Mom’s dosa and a sip of Dad’s tea. I took out the bike I had been using before I left, cleaned it, repaired the engine and took her out for a drive around the block. Instinct guided me through the dirty traffic and in almost no time, I was weaving in and out of oncoming buses and cars in a way that would have made Trinity (in The Matrix) proud.

Met all my friends, tried out the road-side pani-puri and also visited my old college to see all my old teachers again. Ah, I am home! πŸ™‚
